Klaatu talks about Docker and Docker Hub, and shows you how to get started with it. Plus, how to create your own MIMEtypes with the dark magick of XML!

What Klaatu fails to mention is the way to programmatically give the MIMEtype that you create an icon. The secret is to name your icon the same thing as your mimetype xml file, with dashes instead of slashes (for example, application-text-scp.svg) and place the icon file in the appropriate category in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable

You may have to log out and log back in for things to kick in, but it works a treat.

Still having trouble downloading the video episodes from gnuworldorder.info? Fear not, a "friend" of the show has uploaded all the video episodes to the magical and mysterious Answer-to-Every-Problem: the Cloud.

OK, so actually it' just a throw-away Google Drive account. Klaatu would never use it for real data, but as free backup for a publically-released show, this seems like a fair option that costs nothing and also does not put a strain on useful resources over at, say, archive.org

You do not need a Google account to get the episodes; just go to this URL:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_nYaI3DodmMfmNIN1dLNDZMTlBvejdpQThhVGp5eE1XQnlOUTgtbmZzeXpvQ2lfSTlsc1k&usp=sharing

And take what you need.

Swap out your init system with something new.

Is your init system baked into your distribution? Sounds like you use a non-modular package management system. Try Slackware!

Klaatu tries out a neat init hack, demonstrates how to type non-ascii ("special characters") characters on Linux, reviews his experience of spending the past 7 months with the Dvorak keyboard layout, and talks about learning curves and change.

Watch this space for a bonus GIMP-tutorial episode, coming soon (that's two episodes this fortnight, for the price of one).

Did you know that Krita has just won the ImagineFX Magazine Artist Choice Award? ImagineFX is by no means an Open Source -centric magazine, so this is frankly a huge win for the Krita team!
